Dear Praveen Bhat Ji,                                       Although dreamer dreaming another dream is quite valid, then I will put my question in a different way to understand the concept little deeper and I humbly submit the fact that my intention is not to show any highness which normally people misunderstand that.Sir,         I used to keep quite, just like mum in my childhood days and one of my elders from my maternal family told me several time that we should enquire our self always and he also told me that " Not putting efforts to know the things" is also like sin leads to avidya if you have an inclination for self-realization.  Then I asked what we should do, he said we should put all the efforts in knowing the truth or reaching Brahman.
Then in that case: "Will you call 'not knowing the things' is also a experience? in the deep sleep state, if there is no jiva, who is enjoying the happiness there?. There will not be any existence of karana sarira in the deep sleep state, if so any intentional activity in not knowing the things results in sin? pls put your views logically as per tarka/mimasa.

Sri Guru Padaravindarpana MastuKameswara

Q: if  jiva is one , it is only one body that has a jiva, then
 What is the reality of the bodies seen in dreams, which have no jivas?Please put your views in the case of dream perception.

​If there are no jIvas in a dream, who is dreaming? The dreamer is the jIva who is none other than the waker brahman. In fact, this dream becomes the example in EJV to explain the exemplified waking state, which you seem to have understood. 
OTOH, if you are questioning the dream of the waker which is itself said to be like a dream, its like a dreamer dreaming another dream.
